More on Walking safaris in Kenya
Kenya's wildlife and diverse natural beauty are strong drawcards for visitors to the country. For those that really enjoy getting immersed in nature without the distraction of a vehicle (for example), then a walking safari may just be the ideal experience to see wildlife from new perspectives.
Know before you go
Although you will most likely be surrounded by different wild animals during the walking safari, the tours are safe. Always follow instructions from your guide about safety and safari etiquette to minimise any potential issues. Additionally, drink plenty of water, use insect repellents and be sure to pack both over-the-counter and prescription medications.
When to go
The best time to visit Kenya will depend on what you aim to see and do during your visit. The best time to visit for the great wildebeest migration is from July to October, or in the hotter summer months. Try and avoid the rains from March to May.
What to pack
Soft-sided travel bags
Type-G electrical adapters
Sunscreen and sunglasses
Drinking water and light snacks
Flashlight and a headlamp if camping
First-aid kit and medication
Light, neutral coloured clothing
Weather and Climate
Luxury walking safaris run throughout the year, but it’s important to note that the heavy rains from March to around May can make your inland trip more challenging. On the flip side, the prices are usually lower during this period and the lush landscapes and stormy skies can be very dramatic. However, from July to October you can witness the great migration. In general, wildlife can be seen throughout the year with December boasting 10 hours of sunshine per day.
